Successful candidates may pursue their studies in any field of study except law, medicine, pharmacy, and dentistry.
|The Administration of Justice Support II (AOJS II) Project was the second part of a multifaceted initiative aimed at increasing efficiency and transparency in Egypt’s courts over a 13-year period (1996-2009). Building on foundations laid during AOJS I (1996-2004), AOJS II provided a framework for assisting Egypt’s Ministry of Justice as it implemented a nationwide program of court reform, automation, and training. Both AOJS I and AOJS II were funded by the USAID. AOJS II (2004-09) also served as an advocate for gender integration in Egypt’s judiciary, which had no women judges prior to 1994 and, until 2006, one largely symbolic justice at the Supreme Constitutional Court. AOJS II came to a close at the end of September 2009.|
